WelcomeHealth

WelcomeHealth has received $5,000 from Whitaker Family Foundation. The funds will specifically be spent for dental supplies for the newly crafted pediatric dental program.

For the last 31 years, WelcomeHealth has been providing free medical and dental care services to adult patients, but we are proud of our newly added pediatric services that started in August for medical and September for dental.

The pediatric dental program will provide exams, X-rays, cleanings, extractions, fillings, fluoride treatments and sealants to protect back teeth that are often hard to reach during routine brushing at home. The dental staff will concentrate on dental hygiene education for patients and their parents.
